Love is...

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired"-Terri, age 4 After mulling this over for several hours and thinking about how true it really is, I went and found a few more I thought I would share. I have a dry erase board I keep in my bathroom with a few quotes that I change weekly. The one listed above made it on there this week. "If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." -- Glenn, age 7 "Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife." -- Tom, age 5 "On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date." -- Mike, 10 "My mother says to look for a man who is kind. That's what I'll do. I'll find somebody who's kinda tall and handsome." -- Carolyn, age 8 "I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough." -- Regina, age 10 "Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough." -- Lynnette, age 8 "Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love." -- Alonzo, age 9 "Don't say you love somebody and then change your mind. Love isn't like picking what movie you want to watch." -- Natalie, age 9

I've read this somewhere a long time ago but still gives me goosebumps everytime I read it again. Those kids may be too young to understand a lot of things but they sure know what love is.

Yeah, I think it's amazing how aware they are of something they don't completely understand yet. Kids are awesome!

its a nice meaning.. for me love is a practcal.. We cant just live with love only. Once we in the progress of being inlove we cant think it straight but once we already in the middle...we will know that we must be wise and smart too to fight a "love"

It is difficult to define what love is.As you have listed,people have different opinion on it.sometimes love make us happy ,sometimes it make us sad.I thonk it is important to know how to treat with love than what love is.
